Twelve perfect fall finds from Down Under

Twelve perfect fall finds from Down Under

Toronto stores are overflowing with Australian-made clothes, accessories and apothecary products—and no one’s complaining. (Later this month, Toronto Fashion Week is even hosting an “Aussie takeover” showcase featuring five up-and-coming Down Under designers.) The vibe is fun, youthful and refreshingly laid-back. Here, 12 fantastic Aussie finds for fall.


Australian chain Ever New just opened its first Toronto outlet in the Eaton Centre, bringing edgy boho-ish looks, like this bomber jacket, to downtown shoppers. $150. Evernew.ca


Another perfect fall find: a 70s-inspired suede skirt. $150. Evernew.ca


Aussie brand Bailey Nelson provides a trendy middle ground between pricy designer shades and cheapie frames. Case in point? These rose-hued aviators. $145. Baileynelson.com


The label’s translucent cat-eyes are an icy-cool look for winter. $145. Baileynelson.com


Queen West boutique Convey specializes in goods from up-and-coming Aussie and Kiwi designers—like this cozy grey knit from Faddoul. $268. Convey.com
